Description

An instant dry mix composition for providing a beverage

FIELD OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates to instant dry mix compositions, and more particularly to compositions that provide rapid dissolving beverages having two-toned bubbles on the beverage surface upon reconstitution in hot liquids.

The emergence of coffee shops selling cappuccino and other coffee beverages with foam on the upper surface is a recent trend in the food / beverage industry. These stores also sell hot drinking chocolate and tea, which may also have bubbles on the upper surface. In addition to real cappuccino, other hot drinks from the machine are made up of foamed milk and beverages. When the beverage is agitated, white foam tends to have a two-tone appearance on the surface of the beverage, some of which are white or light and some of which are brown or darker.

With the increasing popularity of this type of beverage, many instant cappuccino drinks and the like have appeared on the market. Typically, these instant beverages do not have the appearance of a real beverage because the foamy surface is usually brown.

A recent patent to overcome the drawback of brown foam on instant coffee beverages is US Pat. No. 5,882,716, which describes a soluble beverage powder made of a soluble whitener powder comprising delayed water soluble coffee powder and gas. . The addition of water dissolves the soluble bleach powder first. The coffee then melts, leaving the top surface foam mostly white or very pale. The drawback of this beverage powder, however, is that consumers must wait up to 10 seconds, perhaps even longer, before they can be ready to drink. Furthermore, the upper surface foam is still predominantly white and therefore does not have the two-tone appearance of conventional cappuccino beverages.

It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide an instant dry mix beverage which, upon re-dissolution in hot liquid, produces a two-tone foam on its surface. The composition can be used for drinking chocolate, tea, coffee or any other beverage that requires a two-tone surface foam. The beverage does not require delayed dissolution or dispersion of the beverage as it is rapidly stirred 3-5 times (which is about 2-3 seconds) and gives a two-tone surface foam.

Summary of the Invention

These and other objects will be apparent to those skilled in the art and include foaming creamers to create a foam layer upon redissolution in hot liquids, and mixtures of quick-soluble or quick-dispersible flavor / coloring components with any sweetening components. It can be achieved according to the present invention by providing an instant dry mix composition for producing a beverage having a dichroic foam on the surface, wherein the mixture has a density of at least 1.9 times greater than the density of the foam layer.                 

In a preferred embodiment, the mixture comprises lump coffee as the soluble flavor / coloring ingredient and granulated sugar as any sweetening ingredient. The density of the sugar / coffee mixture ranges from 46-70 g / 100 ml, and the density of the resulting foam layer upon re-dissolution of the foaming creamer in hot water is 17-25 g / 100 ml, typically 19-21 g / 100 ml Range. Hot instant cappuccino beverages are prepared using this formulation by dissolving the creamer in hot water and then adding a mixture of sugar and coffee. Stirring 3-5 times quickly results in a drink with a two-tone foam surface.

The instant dry mix composition of the present invention, when redissolved in a hot liquid, provides a beverage with two-tone foam on its surface, which has the appearance of a real beverage. As used herein, the term "instant" means a product that is readily dissolved or dispersed in a hot liquid suitable for drinking, in particular hot water or hot milk. As used herein, "bicolored" foam means that a relatively darker color gamut of at least 20-80%, preferably 20-60%, is scattered on the surface of the white or colored foam. If the beverage is coffee or hot chocolate, the darker areas will usually be brown. But if the drink is tea, the darker areas may be green or yellow. The remainder of the bubble may be white or simply shaded significantly lighter than darker areas. The phrase "three to five quick stirs" should be considered equivalent to agitation for a period of about 2-3 seconds using a conventional plastic spoon, spoon or other utensils. This is the time required to dissolve or disperse the flavor / colored components sufficiently to drink the beverage. In addition, the compositions of the present invention can be used in connection with all kinds of hot instant beverages in which a two-tone surface is desired, but the description of the specification will first focus on compositions for making instant cappuccino. All percentages herein are percentages based on the dry weight of the relevant ingredients.

The composition of the present invention comprises an expandable creamer and flavor / coloring components. This composition includes any sweetening ingredients, which combine with the flavoring / coloring ingredients to form a mixture. Since the sweetening component is typically combined with the flavor / coloring component in the compositions of the present invention, the description herein will focus on compositions comprising a mixture of two components. However, it should be understood that sweetening ingredients should not be included in the compositions of the present invention.

When the composition is packaged, the mixture is enclosed separately from the expandable creamer. In a preferred embodiment the composition is packaged in one serving size. In order to make a hot beverage with a dry mix composition, the foaming creamer is combined with a hot liquid (typically water or milk) in a cup. Stir the mixture until the creamer dissolves and forms a foam layer. Thereafter, the combined sweetening component and flavor / coloring component are added. The combined sweet and flavor / coloring component density is at least 1.9 times, preferably at least 2.3 times higher than the density of the foam layer, allowing most of the flavor / coloring component to pass through the foam layer. Stirring rapidly, ie 3-5 times quickly, dissolves or disperses the flavor / coloring components to form a drinkable beverage. Small amounts of flavor / coloring components remain in the foam layer, creating a two-tone effect in the foam layer, leaving darker or different colored stripes, dots, and swirls.

As illustrated in Example 5 below, if the ratio of coffee + sugar to foam is> 2.3, then the two-tone foam is always obtained. If the density ratio of coffee + sugar to foam is between 1.9 and 2.29, the two-tone foam is best obtained when the weight ratio of coffee + sugar mixture / creamer is> 1. If the density ratio of coffee + sugar to foam is less than 1.9, the two-tone effect is not obtained.

To achieve the most desirable effect, the components of the instant dry mix composition are packaged in a multicompartment system. Creamer packs on its own. The sweet and flavor / coloring ingredients are packed together but separately from the creamer. Preferably, the sweetening and / or flavoring / coloring ingredients are packaged in a stickpack which is a funneling effect when pouring the contents into a cup, for example a sacheted sachet. Another alternative packaging method is a pinch pack, in which the creamer and flavor / coloring ingredients are layered in one bag. Normally, the user presses on the cloth to combine the creamer with the hot liquid so that only the desired amount of creamer is added to the cup. The user then opens the opposite side of the fabric and presses the fabric to squeeze only the flavor / colored ingredients into the cup. Of course, other techniques can be used to make beverages using pinch packs, and sweetening ingredients can be used as one of its layers.

These ingredients are usually packed in one serving. As illustrated in Example 3 below, the effect of the two-tone foam is obtained regardless of the shape of the cup / mug from which the beverage is made.

The creamer used in the present invention can be any conventional creamer that produces a significant amount of stable creamy foam layer, similar to steamed milk foam. However, in choosing a creamer it is necessary to take into account the density of the combined sweet and flavor / coloring components, since the density of the combined sweet and flavor / coloring components is at least 1.9 than the density of the foam layer in order to obtain a two-tone effect. Because you have to be hungry. Creamers may be dairy based, non-dairy based, or combinations thereof and include proteins, lipids and fillers as essential ingredients. In order to obtain an effervescent effect, the creamer comprises a source of gas which foams. This may be a simple incorporation of bubbles in the dry creamer, which is released when dissolved in the hot liquid, or may involve the use of chemical carbonization alone or in addition to produce a gas when the creamer is dispersed in the hot liquid. The creamer may be so packaged and used or may be dry mixed with sweeteners, flavors, colorants and other ingredients common to spray dried powder creamers and instant beverage compositions. Suitable gassy foamable creamers are described in US Pat. No. 4,438,147, US Pat. No. 4,736,527, and US Pat. No. 4,798,040, the disclosures of which are incorporated herein by reference. Suitable foaming creamers comprising carbonized systems are described in US Pat. Nos. 5,721,003 and 5,780,092, the disclosures of which are incorporated herein by reference, and in German Patent Application No. 4,407,361 A1, published September 7, 1995. It is. As illustrated in Example 1, most conventional creamers with a density of about 12-20 g / 100 ml will produce a foam layer with a density in the range of 16-25 g / 100 ml. In a preferred embodiment, a creamer is used that produces a foam layer with a density of 19-21 g / 100 ml.                 

The sweetening ingredients, if used, are present in amounts that make the beverage moderately sweet. The amount of sweetening component present in the composition depends on the type of sweetener as well as whether the sweetener is present in the creamer. The sweetening ingredient may be natural or artificial. Suitable natural sweeteners include corn syrup solids or other sugar sweeteners such as sucrose, fructose, lactose and maltose.

The term flavor / coloring ingredient refers to instant granular beverages, such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate or any beverage with a foamy surface, but does not include sweeteners or creamers. In addition, the term flavor / coloring component does not include additional additives such as flavors or fragrances.

The flavoring / coloring component is preferably in powder form but may be in solid or tablet form. In the latter case, the sweet and flavor / coloring components are usually combined first and then formed into one or more tablets or another solid form. If the flavor / coloring and sweetening ingredients are in powder form, it is desirable to dry mix them before packaging. Regardless of this form, the flavor / coloring components as well as the sweetening components must dissolve or disperse rapidly, ie sufficient dissolution or dispersion in the hot liquid must take place in about 2-3 seconds.

All conventional methods can be used to prepare flavoring / coloring ingredients. A method of improving the dissolution or dispersion of flavor / coloring components made in powder form is to use agglomeration processes. Typically, agglomerated fluids such as oils, liquids, water or steam are evenly distributed throughout the flavor / colored component spray- or freeze-dried particles to make the particles sticky. It is then stirred so that these particles come into contact with one another. The amount of agglomeration fluid and the agitation time are controlled to adjust the final size of the agglomerated particles. It is not necessary to uniformly combine the flavor / coloring and sweetening ingredients. For example, when a stick pack or pinch pack is used for packaging, the flavor / coloring and sweetening ingredients can be layered as described in Example 9.

In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the flavor / coloring component is a lump instant coffee, which adds a hot liquid to form a cappuccino type beverage. Instant coffee is conventionally prepared by roasting and grinding coffee beans, extracting the roasted and ground coffee with water to form an aqueous coffee extract, and then drying the extract, usually by spray drying or freeze drying. The coffee can be a single coffee bean variety or a blend of several varieties. Coffee may also be free of caffeine. Any conventional method may be used to agglomerate the coffee as described above.

In a preferred embodiment where the flavor / coloring ingredient is instant coffee, the sweetening ingredient is fine granulated sugar. The density of the coffee is preferably 15-40 g / 100 ml, more preferably 20-28 g / 100 ml, and the sugar density is 60-90 g / 100 ml, more preferably 70-90 g / 100 ml to be. In this embodiment, the composition comprises 30-80% by weight of the foaming creamer, preferably 40-75% by weight and 20-75% by weight of the mixture of sugar and coffee, preferably 25-60% by weight. The sugar component comprises about 15-50% by weight, preferably 25-35% by weight of the total composition and the coffee is present in an amount of 5-30% by weight, preferably 15-20% by weight of the total composition.                 

When it is necessary to reduce or eliminate the sugar content of the formulation and incorporate one or more artificial sweeteners, bulking agents such as maltodextrin, polydextrin, lactose and the like may be used instead of substantially the same amount of sugar. The present invention also contemplates using components such as aspartame, cyclamate, acesulfame-K or saccharin as sweetening components.

The flavor / coloring component is inherently colored and may be brown, green, yellow or other colors depending on the beverage. However, if desired, additional coloring ingredients can be added to a mixture of flavor / coloring and sweetening ingredients, usually to give the beverage comprising the foam layer produced when redissolved in the hot liquid to have the desired color. Any conventional coloring component may be used, such as caramel.

The mixture of the present invention may further comprise flavoring and fragrances. As used herein, the term "flavorant" refers to seasonings such as fruits, nuts, chocolate, herbs, and the like. These flavors are usually obtained from encapsulated or liquid perfumes, which can be natural or artificial. The fragrance may be natural or synthetic. Natural fragrances are usually collected during the preparation of the instant flavor / colored ingredients. In the case of instant coffee, volatile fragrance gushes out of the coffee during processing with an inert carrier gas such as, for example, nitrogen. The carrier gas is then cooled to condense the fragrance. The fragrance is collected and then absorbed into a suitable carrier such as coffee oil or otherwise into the carrier during condensation. Flavors and fragrances may be added to the mixture of flavor / coloring and sweetening ingredients or to the creamer or both. However, any further additives should be added in an amount such that the density of the mixture of the flavor / coloring and sweet components is at least 1.9 times, preferably at least 2.3 times the density of the foam layer.

Thickeners, such as food grade gums, can also be used to enhance the oral feel of the composition upon redissolution in hot liquids. The compositions may also include thickeners such as natural and synthetic gums and natural and chemically modified starches.

The invention is further illustrated in the following examples.

≪ Example 1 >

The following experiment was performed to determine the density of the foam layer produced by gasified foaming creamers of different densities. The creamers used were standard gasified foaming creamers having a composition of 53.0% dry skim milk solids, 4.0% lactose monohydrate and 29.5% fat. Each creamer was dissolved in water and the resulting foam layer was spread from the surface to measure the density of the foam.

The density of the creamer is as follows:

Creamer Density Density of foam layer

C1 12.45 g / 100 ml 19.5 g / 100 ml

C2 15.19 g / 100 ml 19.5 g / 100 ml

C3 19.25 g / 100 ml 19.9 g / 100 ml

The conclusion from this set of experiments is that the foam density is very uniform and independent of the creamer density.                 

<Example 2>

The test was performed using three variables or factors, different density coffee, different density creamer and different density sugar. These tests followed a factorial design, with factors classified at three levels (3 × 3) representing a typical product range.

The coffee used was standard instant loaf coffee purchased from a supermarket. Coffee was distinguished by density, and three examples of low, medium and high density were selected. Where low density = 22.4 g / 100 ml, medium density = 25.3 g / 100 ml, high density = 28.1 g / 100 ml.

The sugar used was standard fine granulated sugar purchased from a supermarket. This sugar was distinguished on the basis of density and three examples of low, medium and high density were selected. Where low density = 79.9 g / 100 ml, medium density = 83.2 g / 100 ml, high density = 87.9 g / 100 ml.

The creamer C1-C3 described in Example 1 was used.

The beverage was prepared by adding 6 g of foaming creamer to a cup, pouring 130 ml of hot water into the cup and stirring until the creamer dissolved. Then a mixture of 2 g of rapidly dissolving lump coffee and 4 g of fine granulated sugar was added. The mixture was stirred 3-5 times to dissolve the coffee. The experimental results are shown below.

<Example 3>

A test was conducted to evaluate the effect of different forms of cup / mug on the reconstitution of the composition and the resulting swirling effect of the foam. Four types of cups / mugs were used to demonstrate this effect. The same instant dry mix composition containing instant coffee was used for each experiment. In all experiments the creamer was added to the cup. Hot water was poured and the product was stirred until dissolved. Then a coffee-sugar mixture (1: 2 ratio) that quickly dissolves was poured. The ratio of creamer to coffee / sugar mixture was 1: 1. The ratio of water to product was 11: 1. Due to the difference in density between the coffee / sugar mixture and the foam, the coffee can pass through the foam layer so that only a small amount of coffee remains in the foam layer. In each experiment the product was stirred for 3-5 times or 2-3 seconds.

The conclusion obtained from this set of experiments was that the size of the Merck / Cup was stirred quickly 3-5 times without affecting whether or not a two-tone effect could be obtained.

<Example 4>

The following examples were performed to evaluate the instant particle dry mix composition of the present invention when using instant tea or hot chocolate as a flavor / coloring ingredient.

Drinking Chocolate -Creamer was added to the cup, poured hot water and stirred until the creamer dissolved. The density of the foam layer was measured as 20 g / 100 ml. Then poured a granular hot chocolate + sugar mixture with a density of 78.1 g / 100 ml. Due to the density difference between the drinking chocolate / sugar mixture and the foam layer, the drinking chocolate / sugar mixture can enter through the foam layer so that only a small amount of drinking chocolate remains in the foam layer. Stirring rapidly, ie 3-5 times, the two-color foam effect was obtained due to residual chocolate in the foam layer, while a large amount of drinking chocolate / sugar mixture was dissolved / dispersed under the foam layer.

Instant tea -creamer was added to the cup, hot water was poured and stirred until the creamer dissolved. The density of the foam layer was measured as 20 g / 100 ml. Then poured an instant granular tea + sugar mixture with a density of 46.6 g / 100 ml. Due to the difference in density between the instant tea / sugar mixture and the foam layer, only a small amount of tea remains in the foam layer and the instant tea / sugar mixture can enter through the foam layer. Stirring rapidly, ie 3-5 times, the two-color foam effect was obtained from the residual tea in the foam layer, while a large amount of tea / sugar mixture was dissolved under the foam layer.

The conclusion obtained from this set of experiments is that the two-tone foam effect can be obtained in various recipes as long as the difference in density between the flavor / coloring component and the foam layer is maintained.

Final product appearance definition:

Brownish-uniform brown appears on the surface of the cappuccino.

Good-Two-tone bubbles with brown swirls on a white background.

Occasionally-in a series of formulations some results were classified as "good dichroic foam" and some were classified as "uniform brown foam".                 

The conclusion from this set of experiments

(1) If the density ratio of coffee + sugar to foam is> 2.3, then a two-tone foam is always obtained,

(2) If the density ratio of coffee + sugar to foam is between 1.9 and 2.29, the two-color foam is best obtained when the weight ratio of coffee + sugar mixture / creamer is> 1,

(3) When the density ratio of the coffee + sugar to the foam was less than 1.9, the dichroic effect was not obtained.

<Example 6>

The test was performed using high density flavor / colored ingredients, usually chocolate with a density of 67.0 g / 100 ml.

The foam density of the creamer was usually 20.0 g / 100 ml. A density of 67.0 g / 100 ml of colorant (Cadbury brand chocolate), ie 2 g of flavor / coloring component, was poured over the foam. The colorant penetrated the foam layer due to the density difference between the colorant and the foam. The mixture was stirred for 3-5 times or 2-3 seconds.

The conclusion obtained from this set of experiments is that with a foam density of 20.0 g / 100 ml and a flavor / coloring component density of 67.0 g / 100 ml, the two-color foam effect is obtained by stirring three to five times or within 2-3 seconds.

<Example 7>

Experiments were conducted to determine the effect of adding the sweetener component in a separate action after the addition of the flavor / coloring component. 6 g of standard foaming creamer was added to a standard cappuccino cup, 130 ml of hot water was poured and stirred until the creamer dissolved. The foam density of this creamer was typically 20.0 g / 100 ml. Typically 2.0 g of 25.3 g / 100 ml density coffee was floated onto the creamer foam and 4.0 g of 83.2 g / 100 ml density sugar was immediately floated onto the coffee. This drink was stirred 3-5 times, for 2-3 seconds. There is a uniform brown foam. The conclusion from this set of experiments was that a three-step run as outlined above would not yield a two-tone bubble effect. The coffee placed on top of the foam began to disperse into the foam. Too many bubbles were colored until a sugar could be added later, resulting in a uniform brown foam when agitated.

Experiments were conducted to determine the effect of adding the flavor / coloring component in a separate action after adding the sweetening component. 6 g of standard foaming creamer was added to a standard cappuccino cup, 130 ml of hot water was poured and stirred until the creamer dissolved. The foam density of this creamer was typically 20.0 g / 100 ml. 4.0 g of 83.2 g / 100 ml density sugar was floated over the creamer foam and 2.0 g of 25.3 g / 100 ml density coffee was immediately floated over the sugar. The beverage was stirred quickly 3-5 times. There is a uniform brown foam. The conclusion from this set of experiments was that a three-step run as outlined above would not yield a two-tone bubble effect. The sugar immediately broke through the foam layer and began to disperse into the foam when the coffee was placed on top of the foam. When stirred, a uniform brown foam was formed.                 

Example 9

A set of experiments was performed to determine the effect of layering the flavor / coloring and sweetening components on a serving bag. 6 g of standard creamer (bubble density 20.0 g / 100 ml) was added to the cup, 130 ml of warm water was poured and stirred until the creamer dissolved. 4.0 g of sugar (density 83.2 g / 100 ml) were poured into a packaging system, usually a stick pack, which had a funneling effect upon release. 2.0 g of coffee (density 25.3 g / 100 ml) was added to the stickpack to form a layer on sugar. After opening the stick pack at the coffee end, it was turned upside down and the coffee and sugar layer (lump density about 56 g / 100 ml) was poured into the creamer mixture and stirred quickly 3-5 times at a time. In this arrangement, because sugar immediately follows the coffee, their mass density subsided before the coffee had time to disperse into the foam layer.

Two-tone foam effect was obtained.

The conclusion obtained from this experiment was that, as long as the sweetening component immediately followed the flavoring / coloring component in one action, the components could be layered to achieve a two-tone foam effect.

<Example 10>

The test was carried out using a low density foam creamer. Normally 6 g of foamable creamer was added to a standard cappuccino cup. Pour 130 ml of hot water and stir until the creamer dissolves. The foam density of the creamer was usually 16 g / 100 ml. A 2 g coffee + 4 g sugar mixture with a lump density of 56 g / 100 ml was poured into the creamer mixture and stirred quickly 3-5 times at a time. Two-tone effect was obtained.

The conclusion from this set of experiments was that a dichroic foam could be obtained when the foam density was as low as 16 g / 100 ml.

While the invention has been described in considerable detail with respect to its preferred embodiments, variations or modifications will be apparent to those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as set forth in the claims.
